About this title

Synopsis:

An intoxicating brew of drinking lore, boozy anecdotes and hop-driven history this is the sort of school I wish I’d gone to.” Adrian Tierney-Jones, author of 1001 Beers You Must Taste Before You Die

Humans were seeking out alcohol millions of years before the word keg” was coined. School of Booze contains everything you have ever wanted to know about alcoholic beverages, from how to make absinthe to the cultural history of zythos (beer). It covers the discovery and invention of fermented alcohol, ancient history, toasting, alcohol and health, alcohol’s role in religion, origin of slang expressions, virtually every known form of alcoholic beverage and their histories, temperance and prohibition movements and law, and much more.

Packed with fascinating miscellany and curious facts to entertain your friends at the pub, this book is an essential compendium of knowledge about what essayist Dr. Samuel Johnson called life’s second greatest pleasure.” It is the perfect gift for yourself, or for anyone who enjoys raising a glass to good health. Bottoms up!
